Thank you so much for the outpouring of support on my last post. It seems like you guys are almost as excited as I am that I can run again, and that means the world to me.
Last night I laced up and headed out for my second run post-injury. Everything clicked immediately. I felt fantastic! I stuck to a comfortable pace right around 6:00/KM (I’m not even going to think about pushing the pace until I get my distances back up) and felt like I could keep going and going and… you get the idea.
I set out to run only slightly longer than Sunday’s 4K, but finished off at 7.1 (4.4mi). I could easily have kept on going, but Mom was expecting me for dinner. (Pancakes, anyone?)
Based on how I felt yesterday, I’m hoping to get a 10K in the books before the end of this weekend.
And speaking of 10K, I registered for the Sporting Life 10K yesterday.
Canada’s EASIEST and one of the fastest downhill 10k’s, it runs right down the middle of Canada’s most famous street—Yonge Street!
Whether you are a novice looking for the easiest course around to complete your first 10k or a seasoned veteran setting that new PB, this is the event for you! Sign up today and join 10,000+ fitness enthusiasts in the dash down Yonge Street.
I loved the energy and excitement of this event last year and I blew my own goal out of the water with a 49:10 finish. It’s a famously fast course and I am definitely looking for another PR. Any of my fellow Torontonians going to be there?
